In September 2022, a new photography book, presenting pictures of The Beatles by photographer Tommy Hanley, was published in a collector’s edition limited to 1000 numbered copies.
Tommy Hanley was one of the great music photographers of our time. During the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80’s, Tommy captured some of the most unforgettable images of the biggest names in pop, rock and jazz.
Many years in the making, ‘With A Little Help From My Lens’ is the long-awaited story of Tommy’s remarkable close relationship with the world’s most famous band, The Beatles.
The book chronicles his time with the ‘Fab Four’, from when he first met and photographed them in 1963, through to the end of the decade when Tommy found himself at the epi-centre of the eccentricity that was the Apple empire. Finally, he shares his experiences in the 1980’s when he was appointed as an archivist by Apple Corps to assist in tracking down photographs and memorabilia for the Anthology project.
Illustrated with rare and previously unpublished photographs, ‘With A Little Help From My Lens’ is a fascinating and personal account of Tommy’s work and friendship with The Beatles.
This book will be available as a special collector’s edition, strictly limited to just 1,000 numbered copies. Each copy features a specially commissioned hologram front cover of Tommy’s iconic ‘Four Ties’ image and is presented in a uniquely designed presentation box.
Owners of the special edition will enjoy bonus chapters featuring interviews with Tommy about his times with The Beatles, and a selection of rare colour images of both The Beatles and many of the personalities that were also part of the 1960s scene. These images have only recently come to light after an extensive rummage through Tommy’s personal archive, and have been beautifully brought to life using today’s state of the art digital technology.
Each special edition owner will also be entitled to pre-register for pre-sale preview of the new image print collection, and be first in line to purchase a selection of Tommy’s images, including the innovative ‘light box’ limited edition prints at generously discounted prices.
This special, limited edition will sell out quickly, so don’t miss your opportunity to secure a copy by pre-registering your interest here.
From Amateur Photographer, February 16, 2022:
The upcoming book ‘With a Little Help from My Lens’ is Tommy Hanley’s personal account of the time he spent with The Beatles. Originally written in 2009 it has been brought to life by his son, Tony Hanley. The 1,000 limited edition copies include over 100 of Tommy Hanley’s images, from the height of the group’s early fame in the early 60s to fascinating intimate images shot in the Apple Offices at the end of their career together.
Tony Hanley commented, ‘My late father, Tommy, originally penned this book well over 12 years ago. Sadly, his health slowly deteriorated to the point that he could no longer continue, so I made a promise to bring it to life one day. It is indeed a great moment to be able to share, just a small selection of his images which, using today’s digital technology, have been brought back to life and appear in all their glory in the book, as well as his fascinating and personal account of the friendship he enjoyed with The Beatles.
Hanley was another Londoner who had The Beatles’ confidence, as well as a first rate feel for releasing the shutter, often the only photographer in the room.Mark Lewisohn, Beatles historian – From With a Little Help from My Lens | Tommy Hanley Photography
